Rustic Wedding in Mountains
This real wedding article is going to be different: instead of the full report I am going to concentrate on details, which were spotted at the rustic-themed wedding in Telluride, Colorado.
There couldn’t be a better backdrop for the informal wedding in the rustic theme than the San Sophia overlook in Telluride, Colorado. Encircled with the mountains, there was no need for the fancy ceremony venue décor, so it was kept simple in order not to overlap with the beautiful mountains. As for the aisle decorations, the couple opted for the wonderful arrangements made from the thistle and field flowers placed on the wooden pedestals.
Guests were offered the snug wool blankets in order to stay warm in the mountain town. The petal bags as well as the ceremony programs featured the same mountain pattern that was used on the invitations. The couple found an original alternative to the boutonnieres: the groom’s mother made the knitted hearts to wear instead of the boutonnieres, which echoed the hand-made heart-shaped ring bearer pillow.
As for the wedding reception, the made accent was made on the candles. The dinner took place in Allreds restaurant, which design reminds the lodge lost in the wood. The glass vases with Astilbe arrangements as well as the elegant candlesticks were used as table arrangements. They were placed on the taupe dupionique linens that ideally matched the overall color palette.
The design of the cake was simple and contemporary: three layers of cake were adorned with two oversized sugar flowers. After the cake was cut, the guests were invited downstairs to continue the celebration at the surprise after-party. An incomplete raw space was turned into the speakeasy: the Edisons lamps and furniture of those times added a realistic vibe to the place.
But the real spotlight of the party was the custom made chalkboard that was hanged over the bar, which served the cocktails of that era. Besides the signature cocktails, the guests enjoyed the coffee or espresso drinks made by the recognizable barista.
